The sprouter is made of natural, porous clay.
We chose this material to keep the moisture
evenly distributed and let the sprouts grow
free from mold. The glazed bottom container
collects the excess of water after daily rinses.
Not many people know, but the sprouts do not like the light
and grow better in the darkness. That is another reason
why our sprouter is made of terracotta, not plastic.
It is better for them, and the environment too.
We studied the entire process of growing sprouts.
First you soak the seeds in water. You can use the lid as we gave it a little rim. Two levels let you grow different seeds at the same time. And you can pour the rinsing water away in one move – through the spout in the bottom.
